Foundations of Chemistry 10 (1):3-12 (2008)
|Abstract||Many different arguments have been put forward in order to assign the best place for a given element within Mendeleev's Table: its spectroscopy, its chemical activity, the crystalline structure of its solid state, etc. We here propose another criterion; the nature of the few body corrections to the pairwise additive energy. This argument is used here to address a question often brought forward by Eric Scerri in Foundations of Chemistry, namely the rightful place of helium; either above the column of the alkaline earths (beryllium, etc.) or rather above the noble gas elements.|
